Congratulations to our July Facebook Fan of the Month, Noah Lis. Lis, who is a senior at a small state university in Mass., is a local entertainer, singer, songwriter and musician. He provides entertainment for more than 140 events per year and is intrigued by live concert productions.
“I consider myself to be a bit of a “gear nut.” It is amazing to see the dynamics and energy produced by a talented group of musicians, good sound, vibrant lighting and an excited audience.” Lis said.
1. Favorite CHAUVET® light/product.
My favorite CHAUVET® light product has to be my Q-Spot 260-LED. They are bright enough to cut through any amount of wash I have on stage, have smooth movement and feature a number of different gobos and effects that never seem to get old. They are only limited to the creativity of their operator.
2. Favorite CHAUVET® YouTube video.
My favorite is the Q-Wash 560Z-LED product video. I own these fixtures and chose this video because it really demonstrates the finesse, power and professionalism that went into the construction of this fixture.
3. Favorite DJ.
I’m not huge into the DJ scene but I can certainly appreciate the work they do. I prefer seeing live music and three of my favorite artists, are Elton John, Billy Joel, and Robbie Williams. They have spoken to me through my own music and song writing.
4. Favorite event/nightclub with lights.
Lighting the Christian rock group IONA. The band came over from the UK for a North American tour and gave me free reign to program scenes and movements. The show ended up being a huge success.
5. Favorite tip for new CHAUVET® DJs.
Go with CHAUVET® — they are the best bang for your buck. When I provide lighting, my philosophy is ‘the brighter the better.’
6. Complete this sentence: A show without lights is like…
A show without lights is like the 4th of July with no fireworks.
